Roses and Apple - SOLD

"Roses and Apple", 12 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
I am painting these roses over and over. I am drawn to it, just as I am drawn to painting Zangle Cove over and over. Sometimes I think it is a kind of laziness, but I recently read from some well-known artist that its good to do the same scene or set-up over and over. I've read that some artists will do the exact same set-up more than once during the day, making each subsequent painting of shorter duration time.


  1. soft beautiful colors! I just love it!

  2. So masterful! The color harmony and brushwork are exquisite.

  3. Maria and Carol--thank you for your comments--I really appreciate them!
